Although written for a young/teen audience (I believe) this does not mean there is any lack of characterisation. Indeed, the trials of Ged do boil down all the highfalutin mumbo jumbo of many books into the simple questions of moral, values and choices that we all face in our day to day lives.
Having been a little disappointed in re-reading some books it's great to find a series that stood the test of time both of the book and the reader :)
This review, however is for the content which is flawless. I'm only halfway through - one chapter away from the end of book 2 but I'm forcing myself to read slowly as this is one of those compelling stories that you don't want to end. Characters are beautifully written and the world of Earthsea is totally immersive. A wonderful place to escape to when you need a break from real life. I'm not going to give away any plot lines so all I will say is if you like fantasy novels as I do, this will probably be the best written one you could find. Loving it!
